Comment Re:It's a bit like when Reagan took office (Score 1, Interesting) 432

It was as if the hostage takers are all frightened of what Reagan would do

To the contrary, they knew exactly what Reagan would do. They made a back room deal with Iran during the election - an act of Treason by the gipper.

Reagan should have died of his dementia in federal prison.

Couldn't they just make it all up again? The whole thing is a powergrab by nanny-state socialists.

Yeah, you'd think if it were all made up they could just make it all up again. This just serves to demonstrate the unpresidented level of detail they are taking this climate change simulation simulation thing.

Putting aside all of the horrendous mistakes and oversights of that organization, is it not possible that there is a far better alternative way to manage the tug-of-war between resource utilization and resource preservation?

By all means, share with us that alternative way.

It's not necessarily "a few years" to become a citizen in the U.S. unless you have money, some special skill and/or you come from a country from which not very many people are seeking to come to the U.S..

It can easily take decades for people from Central American countries to gain citizenship in the United States.

If you buy your phone on contract, you're getting it 'free' in the sense that you're getting a loan at 50-100% APR

That depends on the carrier. Many give no discount in service for paying the full price of the phone, so as long as you're okay with being "locked in" for two years, taking the subsidized phone makes perfect sense.
